tv Way Too Early MSNBC March 23, 2015 2:30am-3:01am PDT
ted cruz has made it official at least on twitter. at midnight the senator from texas tweeted i'm running for president and i hope to earn your support along with this video. >> it's a time for truth. a time to rise to the challenge, just as americans have always done. i believe in america and her people and i believe we can stand up and restore our promise. it's going to take a new generation. of courageous conservatives to help make america great again and i'm ready to stand with you to lead the fight. >> last night the associated press shot photos of his family trying out the liberty university stage where he will speak today. becoming the first major candidate to announce a run for 2016. cruz decided to jump the rest of the field and he has a lot of work to do. the latest wall street journal poll shows nearly as many
republicans couldn't see themselves supporting him as those that could but will the early entrance help him. no candidate to announce their candidate first has won since 1952 and the backlash has begun. governor jerry brown had this to stay. data doesn't always back up claims of rising temperatures. >> when he said is absolutely false, and that man has such a level of ignorance and a direct falsification of existing scientific data. it's shocking and i think that man rendered himself unfit to be running for office. >> the site of his university is also of interest. it's the private christian college. according to the son of the founder, the previously
scheduled speech for today is being rescheduled. and as one senator jumps into the race for the white house, another is being urged to do the same. the boston globe's editorial board is calling on senator elizabeth warren to run for the democratic nomination in 2016. the globe writes democrats would be making a big mistake if they let hillary clinton coast to the presidential nomination without real opposition. and elizabeth warren can make sure that doesn't happen. if warn sticks to her refusal, she should make it her responsibility to recruit candidates to provide voters with a debate on her signature cause reducing income inequality. matchups show a gap of over 40 points between warn and clinton.
and warren has repeatedly said she's not running for president and has taken no steps to indicate otherwise. "the new york times" this morning is shedding light on e-mails that hillary clinton turned over on benghazi. it left four americans dead. the e-mails do not suggest that clinton was part of a coverup or told u.s. forces not to respond as some critics have claimed. one chain focuses on the ambassador then to the u.n., susan rice who went on five sunday talk shows and stated it was a spontaneous attack. clinton's department of staff initially appeared to be pleased saying she did make clear our view that this started spontaneously but as criticism
grew she's in damage control. telling him you never said spontaneous. aids also used personal e-mail to correspondent with clinton which contra dilktdicts her remarks earlier this month. >> i communicated with other government officials on their dot glove accounts. those e-mails would be saved in the state department's system to meet recordkeeping requirements and that indeed is what happened. >> but in a statement clinton's spokesman said it was the aid's practice to primarily use their work e-mail when conducting state business with only the tiniest fraction of the more than 1 million they sent or received involving their personal accounts. isreal's president is holding a second round of talks today about forming the new israeli government but it appears officials are still focussed on what happened into
the runup to the country's elections. president obama is finally speaking out in an interview including criticizing benjamin netanyahu for warning that israeli arabs were out voting in droves. >> we indicated that that kind of rhetoric was contrary to what is the best of isreal's traditions. that although isreal was founded based on the historic jewish homeland, and the need to have a jewish homeland israeli democracy has been premised on everybody in the country being treated equally and fairly. >> president obama also says benjamin netanyahu jeopardized the possible peace deal we vowing palestinians would not have a state if he is prime minister. >> i did indicate to him that we continue to believe that a two-state solution is the only
way for the long term security of isreal if it wants to stay both a jewish state and democratic. we take him at his word when he said it wouldn't happen during his prime minister time. and that's why we've got to evaluate what other options are available to make sure that we don't see a chaotic situation in the region. >> but the israeli ambassador to the u.s. says that benjamin netanyahu did not change his position. >> why did the peace process collapse? you can't join up with a terrorist organization. a palestinian state would be a palestinian terrorist state. the prime minister is not against a demilitarized palestinian state. he's against a terror state on the west bank which would create 20 gazas. >> mccain is defending netanyahu by taking his own jab at president obama.
>> the president should get over it. get over your temper tran trum mr. president. it's time that we work together with our israeli friends and try to stem this tide of isis and iranian movement throughout the region which is threatening the very fabric of the region. the least of your problems is what benjamin netanyahu said during an election campaign. >> we'll talk about this on morning joe. just days after a deadly suicide bomb at a mosque in yemen, the country appears to be spiraling out of control. prompting the u.s. to evacuate its remaining troops from the region and yemen's president to call for a, quote, urgent intervention by the u.n. security counsel. nbc news christen welker has more on this developing story. >> reporter: rebels fired tear gas as sectarian fighting intensified in the streets. the u.n. security counsel held an emergency meeting and called
for an end to the bloodshed. they have since claimed large parts of country and seized the third largest city just 85 miles from where the president established a base. this weekend the u.s. pulled out of its special forces after intensified fighting and a bloody mosque attack claimed by isis killed people. >> we have been drawing down our presence there for some time as the situation has gone from bad to worse. >> yemen is a breeding ground for terrorists. the underwear bomber in 2009 and one of the shooters in paris was trained in yemen. >> good intelligence stops plots against the homeland. without it we cannot stop it. >> reporter: dpl n an interview last month president obama said the u.s. will continue to combat terrorists in the region.
>> we've been able to maintain pressure in al-qaeda in that region. >> can you do that without a government that's a partner. >> we feel confident we can maintain that pressure. >> a u.s. official told us that's still the case but there's a new opening for al qaeda and isis to thrive. >> while they're focussed on things in yemen we know they have objectives that go much further including the united states. >> and an isis hit list surfacing over the weekend urging sympathizers to kill american soldiers. they have reportedly published names, and alleged addresses of active and retired military personnel online. we have more on this latest call for terror. >> reporter: it's already happening. in tunisiaed a a tourist-filled museum in paris and canada.
isis claims it posted the names, photos and supposed addresses of about 100 u.s. service members after it says it hacked into military servers and databases. the group claimed the 100 americans carried out air strikes in iraq and syria and that they should be killed in their own lands as they walk their streets thinking they are safe. the terrorist website urged on any potential lone wolf demanding what where you waiting for. defense officials tell us the list contains names of some active duty service members. some deployed overseas some combat pilots. the pentagon is urging anyone on the list to exercise caution but at this time has apparently made no decision to pull them off duty or provide personal protection. >> we're going to turn business now. u.s. stocks closed on a high
note friday. the nasdaq reached its highest level in 15 years. steve, what should investors expect for this week? >> it's going to be less tu mull chews you in many ways. last week it was about what janet had to say. the markets ended up. we saw the s&p breaking three weeks of negative moves. the inflation tomorrow inflation is one of the key things she mentioned in her speech last week as well. of the u.s. on tuesday. also oil will be a large component of that and fairly good news for people. the average national price of gasoline falling four cents over the last few weeks. people in louisiana not enjoying mitt. $3.29 for that. and charleston $211. >> steve, it was a big weekend for women at the box office.
which movies led the way and how did they stack up against their male counter parts? >> it's all about girl power. i'm sure you've always said that as well. it was the films that attract women audiences which were key. the likes of 50 shades of gray. most men don't admit to it. women made up 66% at cinderella as well. insurgent 60% female and a big year for the theaters because last year was a bad year for them. and yet the theaters have made so many super hero movies but apparently men are more easily distracted by other forms of entertain. . women are now more reliable opening weekend audience. is that the case? >> i think so. thank you very much. still ahead on "way too early," the ncaa tournament down to 16 teams. sweet for some.
bitter for others as top seeds get wiped out. time to pull out your brackets. plus the conversation won't likely be happening any time soon with your star bucks barista. that didn't work out too well. what they are saying about the much criticized campaign about race relations. that and a check on weather when "way too early" comes back. skied there before. i was lost and my kids could tell. i forgot a map. so i got out my phone. i have verizon.

>> trace so good in this situation. takes the long one. wow. really. those were some of the biggest games in the ncaa tournament round over the weekend. one seed villanova knocked out by michigan and a pair of two seeds going home early after being eliminated earlier. that brings us to the sweet sixteen. the madness resumes with the matchups on thursday. san francisco 49ers running back chris borland shocked the states last week when he announced his retirement from the nfl after only one season citing concerns about repeated head trauma. he spoke about his decision on face the nation yesterday. >> to me the decision was simple after i'd done a lot of
research and it was personal. i was concerned about nur logical diseases. in there was a moment in camp that i probably sustained a mild concussion. it changed the way i view the risks of my chosen profession. to play one year is not a cash grab. i'm paying back part of my signing bonus. this about health for me. i never played the game for attention or money. i love the game. i don't regret the last ten years of my life. >> he gave back three quarters of his bonus. >> a lot of people can't believe it. so many people it seems would make the other decision to go for the money instead of the health. >> i wonder if it'll make an impact because it's such a massive money maker. >> i think the impact is on the youth, on the parents that
aren't letting their kids play anymore. i think the people that can get the millions are still going to risk their health but their kids. i have no make that decision. a lot of people do. >> i wouldn't do it if i had boys. >> i know. that's the problem. >> are we done? you ruined my weekend. >> it was cold and windy. i know. no is the answer. >> are you serious? >> not even close. at least another week or two. we'll get a couple brokes. it snowed this morning. southern minnesota waking up to 3-6 inches of snow that is now over rock ford. chicago, it's heading your way if it hasn't already and even in chicago 2-4 inches of snow. secondary roads could be problematic. that travel from northern indiana today. rain in florida pushing off the southeast coast. a lot of people down there on spring break this week and this is when we're going to see a rainy monday for you.
let me take you through the forecast because there are some spots in the country, actually a majority of the country is plenty warm. oklahoma city is 77 degrees. the cold stuff is up in chicago into the northeast and tuesday, we get very warm. 0s up as far north as kansas. then we get thunderstorms. this map is for you. here's the forecast for friday into next weekend and saturday. another huge shot of cold air. we're talking about the potential for a freeze even in the south for the flowers. they're worried about pollen in the south and this is going to be record-breaking cold and the other side of that? record-breaking heat throughout all of the west. this is just a -- we're putting this on repeat and it's going way too long. >> is it going to be spring in april? >> maybe. >> go away. still ahead john oliver offers
his take on the star bucks race initiative. why he thinks it may not have been a good idea for americans to tackle the issue of race before their morning coffee fix. before earning enough cash back from bank of america to help pay for her kids' ice time. before earning 1% cash back everywhere, every time. and 2% back at the grocery store. even before she got 3% back on gas all with no hoops to jump through. katie used her bankamericard cash rewards credit card to stay warm and toasty during the heat of competition. that's the comfort of rewarding connections. apply online or at a bank of america near you. when you ache and haven't slept... you're not you. tylenol® pm relieves pain and helps you fall fast asleep and stay asleep. we give you a better night. you're a better you all day. tylenol®. photos are great... ...for capturing your world. and now they can transform it
>> there isn't a news room across new york or several other big cities that isn't mourning the loss of an incredible person and mother. a veteran reporter and anchor for wabc died of a brain hemorrhage after covering a story. she handled all the news beats. she was on the scene of the crash of flight 587 in greens and reported from manhattan after the attack on the world stride center. but aside from her impressive reports which he honed in looechld and orlando, her most important role was that of mother and wife. friends and colleagues note her unwaivering pride of her two young sons. she chose the morning shift at chonl 7 even though she was offered to be promoted off of it several times. she chose the early morning shift so she could get home to her boys. she was 49 years old. >> star bucks announced its race
together initiative less than a week ago and already it's coming to an end. as of yesterday they will no longer be writing the words race together on cups for customers. ceo says the company's broader efforts for better dialogue on race will continue. noted he expected some pushback. he writes in part while there has been criticism of the initiative and i know this hasn't been easy for any of you, let me assure you we didn't expect universal praise. they faced hostile reaction from critics who said they didn't properly engage its workers to engage in such a sensitive topic. >> what if we were to write race together on every star bucks cup and that facilitated a conversation between you and us. and if a customer asked what this is, try and engage in a discussion that we have problems in this country with regard to race and racial inequality.
>> i think it's pretty clear, no one has said no to this guy in 25 years. a conversation about race is clearly important but there's a time and a place. and it is not the length of time it takes to whip up a frap chino. think about it. you get a heart felt conversation about race going only to have it interrupted by someone screaming can we solve racism later? i'm late for [ bleep ] work. >> no one has said no to him. now for a preview of what's coming up on morning joe. reaction to ted cruz's announcement that he's running for president including from a governor that calls him absolutely unfit to run for office. i wouldn't count him out though. we're live in virginia where crews make it official later this morning. and also clay achen joins us
from his announcement from his concession. is he planning to run again. plus the author of a new book will tell us why he thinks the u.s. should impose a draft that guarantees the rich get called for duty. i think that's fascinateing and if our 8:30 half hour. the woman who runs the boston globe editorial page tells us why she thinks elizabeth warren should challenge hillary clinton. that and a whole lot more coming up on "morning joe". i'm looking forward to. for some every dollar is earned with sweat, sacrifice, courage. which is why usaa is honored to help our members with everything from investing for retirement to saving for college. our commitment to current and former military members and their families is without equal.
